Expressing his views on the need of electric and driverless cars in future, the Bollywood Superstar said, “We will be going a lot more electric in the future and second, there will be less and fewer drivers.”
Further, he said, “I think there will be this move to driverless travel… lesser (number) of kids will learn how to drive, I think more machines will have to take over.” But these (vehicles) will have to be safer, cleaner.”
While commenting on the pollution-related issue of Delhi, Shah Rukh said, “Being a Delhiite, I take that very personally. I think this is the coolest city… I think the electric part of it will have to come into being. So the faster we can do it, the better.”
Speaking on the electric vehicles, Khan added, “I would love to take a test drive in the Ioniq (Hyundai’s electric car unveiled at the Expo)…I would love to get the first hybrid or electric complete.”

Khan giving his views on the social media trolls said one must not “take everything at a face value” that they see on social media and that at times, it “takes away an honest voice.”
He added, “It’s nicer to sit back and not react to social media. Some may say it has blunted me or quietened me, but that is not true. I am just observing how this new machine works.”
